of a timetable on it, saying if the forecast for the economy goes as planned, we'll start reducing the amount of -- combination for the economy by the end of this year and we'll end it next year. he tried to go to great, great lengths to say, you know what, that doesn't mean we're tightening on the economy, just we're not stimulating the economy as much as we do before. >> we've seen the market drop even lower today. there is some thought that that might actually have to do with what's happening in china as well. can you talk a little bit about that? >> i think that's a piece of it. we got negative data out of china that was a bit of a surprise. there's concern about the chinese central bank there, the people's bank of china clamping down on bank lending there so maybe you'd have what you call a hard landing where things would stop a little more abruptly than had been anticipated. the data out of the u.s. was a mix. we're kind of feeling our way along here. i think the real concern for the markets right now is does the fed make a mistake here? does it end up withdrawing the stimulus from the

" on sunday. >> >> we want to do our own congressional summit on immigration, the economy, spying. we've got terrific four some to talk about this, as well as to really examine the president's standing right now politically with some of these issues. and we'll do that with our round table. >> thank you very much. we'll be watching. >> okay. >> and senate approval of a broad overhaul of the nation's immigration system could get a boost to spend billions on border patrol. but while it is raising hopes for republican support, there is strong opposition to it. >> if it were actually needed and work, i would help deal with that. but i don't -- i have my doubts that this is the best way to spend our money. i think this was a political response to a failing piece of legislation, a dramatic, desperate attempt to pass a dramatic piece of amendment so they can say it does everything you want and more. so we'll see. hopefully it does improve the border. but again, the border is just one part of the overall failure of our immigration system. >>> and joining me now is nbc news capitol hill correspondent,

's supposedly about the global economy but of course, the war, the political conflict, top of mind is syria. >> that's right. this was all supposed to be about figuring out how to help europe's economy get out of its recession as fast as the u.s. has done. talk of a big trade pact. granted, that's still happening. but syria is the dominant topic. the president meets with vladimir putin on the schedule it is supposed to be in about 15 minutes. we expect it to be a 60 to 90-minute bilat cal session. then the two leaders will speak afterwards. now judging by the tone of the bilateral meeting -- at least the read-out of the meeting that putin had with david cameron in london yesterday, whether it came to the issue of syria, it would be surprising if somehow they came out with some break-through about what to do next. as you know, the united states position is try to convince putin that it is in his best interests to essentially push assad out and help keep assad's regime at the negotiating table. it is a tricky deal for the u.s. to sell. we'll see if putin is listening. >> who else might be lis

the book. what you've done is try to pull back the covers, if you will, on the way the economy and what we've come through with this devastating recession has affected lives across the country. tell me what you were trying to accomplish. >> the unwinding is a portrait of america over a whole generation. it begins in 1978 which is when i think a lot of the things that we're very familiar with today, deindustrialization, political polarization, the rise of lobbying, the information age had their origins. and it follows a handful of characters, most of whom readers won't have heard of. through their lives, as they move through america, through this incredibly tumultuous time, all these olden institutions and stru structures which used to support ordinary people's ambitions starts to unravel more and more. it is about the undoing of a social contract and it ends today. it is a whole generation of history. >> how has it affected our politics? >> i think what we've seen is, '78 was the year newt grichl in was elected to congress. there are profiles of ten celebrity americans to show what's happe
